COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

pedrodv89 (30) - wetteren, - JAN 17, 2013
De smaak volgt dezelfde evolutie als die van de "Tremens" : de zoete, fruitige aanzet (rozijnen) gaat over in een warm en vol midden, om pas in afdronk enige bitterheid te tonen (minder uitgesproken dan bij de Tremens)

Restrained aroma in a deep red brown pour. Complex yet subtle mix of grain and fruit make this a deliciously different brew (from the usual IPA at least).

pivnizub (10523) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2017 Bouteille: Deep ruby-amber coloured, some floaties visible, big and stable and creamy and lacy tanned head, complex - mainly sweet - nose of sweet dark malt and licorice, traces of dried fruits well detectable, traces of hops hardly detectable; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; drier finish , dried fruits, caramel and traces of chocolate detectable, well balancing bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but not my cup of tea. To be honest, I did not like it at all...

Lnge, alltfr lnge, har flaskan gckat mig, uppflugen som den varit p mnga, alltfr mnga, hyllor i lhallar, precis utom rckhll, en hgring som ristat in sig i minnet, och som nr den till sist uppenbarar sig en sen kvll i Tallinn fr ett gonblick fr mig att tro p mirakel, tills det upplses i strupen, frvandlat till den typ av smakrik l som belgare tycks brygga lika ltt som om det gllde kokkaffe. Trffa aldrig dina idoler, heter det. Och drick inte l som du lnge, alltfr lnge, har beundrat p distans.
